The Importance of Having a Platform

In public speaking and presentations, basically, in selling yourself, your business, your ideas, it is important to create and maintain your platform. If you want to be a super expert like Vaynerchuk, I know it would be hard at first, but if you keep at it, the rewards will translate to profits and credibility. And it all starts with an idea…. a strong idea to be precise. These ideas will be your foundation, the very reason why people will want to hear you, talk about you, watch you.

In order to make sure that you get to have a strong idea for your platform, consider the following:

  1. Find your passion.
  2. Know your audience.
  3.  Decide on a content strategy.


Ideas become a kind of currency which will translate into value for your audience, which will later on translate to a profitable business for you.
